    Background

    WordPress was developed in response to popular demand for a well architectured personal web publishing system. It was born in 2003, developed by Matt Mullenweg and Mike Little based on an earlier system called b2. The platform uses PHP code to automate the repetitive tasks of web development. This was accomplished by using modular, reusable code snippets that are managed automatically through an intuitive graphic user interface or GUI.
